Consistent with Chris Cotillo, the Yankees have signed veteran first baseman Logan Morrison to a minor league contract. He’ll head to Prolonged Spring Coaching to get at-bats prior to becoming a member of Triple-A Scranton. Joel Sherman says Morrison will get a $1M base wage on the large league degree and a July 1st opt-out.
Morrison, 31, struggled with the Twins ultimate yr, hitting .186/.276/.368 (74 wRC+) with 15 house runs in 95 video games prior to having season-ending hip surgical treatment. Two years in the past he authored a .246/.353/.516 (130 wRC+) line with 38 homers for the Rays. I wouldn’t hang my breath looking ahead to that man to come back again.
It’s possible you’ll recall Morrison ripped MLB for inviting Gary Sanchez to the House Run Derby two years in the past, pronouncing he will have to’ve been there as a substitute. A refresher, by means of Bryan Hoch:
“Gary shouldn’t be there,” Morrison stated. “Gary’s a perfect participant, however he shouldn’t be within the House Run Derby. I keep in mind after I had 14 house runs. That was once a month and a part in the past.”
At the day of Morrison’s feedback, he had 24 house runs and Sanchez had 13. Gary has out-homered Morrison 44 to 29 since that day whilst enjoying more or less the same quantity of video games (169 to 164) and being a catcher. “(Yankee lovers) didn’t just like the Gary Sanchez factor with the House Run Derby however you’ll’t repair silly, you already know?” Morrison later stated to Zach Miller.
ANYWAY, the Morrison signing is an obtrusive transfer to refill intensity following Greg Chicken’s newest harm. The one first base possibility in Triple-A is Ryan McBroom, who the RailRiders wish to use within the outfield now and again. The Yankees wanted a Triple-A primary baseman and so they signed a Triple-A primary baseman who perhaps may just sock some dingers with a wholesome hip. We’ll see.
